I wanted to create a heavenly scene for my lovely unicorns. For the first card, I started out by using my sunburst stencil, on Neenah solar white cardstock and I adhered my colorful vellum on top. this created some dimension and lovely details to my card. I also used the clouds border die to die-cut my clouds. Here is my first card:

For my second card, I started out by using the Starfield stencil by NND with my fossilized Amber distress oxide ink. I die-cut the clouds with the clouds border die and the Rainbow using a die from my stash. I adhered the rainbow to my card front, as well as the clouds. I used my foam tape to adhere my unicorn, and stamped my sentiment using my new stamping platform tool by Tim Holtz. I finished my design by adding the 4mm sparkling clear solid confetti mix from Kat Scrappiness. here is my second card:

Life is a Beautiful Ride – Newton Scoots By

Hello my crafty friends! I’m finally back today after a short (and scary) “medical” hiatus. I am so happy because the doctor told me that I wouldn’t need surgery and I will only have to undergo physical therapy for the next few weeks. That being said, I am slowly trying to get back to the swing of things and it is going to take awhile before everything is back to normal schedule for me.

 

I apologize if I will not have a step-by-step instruction for you for my card today. I hope you understand. I am still recovering and was advised to take it easy for a few more weeks. It actually took me awhile to make the card below but I’m just thankful that I can finally use my right arm to color and die-cut, or even type this blog post. God is great!

 

For my card today, I am showcasing the new May release stamp set called Newton Scoots By and its coordinating dies, the land border dies, and the Newton’s Birdbath stamp set and its coordinating dies. I wanted to create a happy and cheerful card today.

 

Here’s my pop-up box. I hope you like the card and got inspired today. Please visit http://www.newtonsnookdesigns.com to purchase the new stamps and dies. Have an amazing day!
